The water levels at Mark Twain Lake have started to drop.

In a press release from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, officials report the Salt River basin crested at 626.2 Saturday and has been receding since.

Normal lake elevation is 606.

Officials advise that you will likely find floating and submerged debris on the lake as the water continues to recede, so if you’re on the lake, you are urged to be cautious and always wear a life jacket.

While a number of project areas and facilities are still closed, a number of lake access points have reopened, including Hunter Fisherman Lot 33, along with all restrooms and fish cleaning stations in the John Spalding Day Use and Boat Ramp recreation areas.

All high water ramps have been closed, and normal ramps have been put back into service. The restroom and fish cleaning station has also been reopened in the Indian Creek West Boat Ramp recreation area.

The following project areas and facilities are temporarily closed:
• Indian Creek Beach
• John F. Spalding Beach
• All courtesy docks have been removed
• Joanna Trail
• Lick Creek Trail
• Hunter-Fisherman Access 11 (Rt N), 20 (Hwy FF), 61 (Duane Wheelan), 30 (Rt U), and 12.
• Mark Twain State Park Beach
• Mark Twain State Park Rt U ramp
• Mark Twain State Park Hwy 107 Ramp

Closings and facility impacts are subject to changing conditions.
